Highlights from the 2011 Atlantic Watersports Games
by John Watson



Entries for the surf kayak event were from Devon, Cornwall and Brittany. The team from Brittany were strong kayakers with great experience in ocean kayak racing and some waveski. We are very grateful to AS Watersports of Exeter for loaning the team their Valley surf kayaks, and to Mega for the use of a demo boat. Our guests from Brittany say they very rarely see a surf kayak on the waves at home, but they enjoyed themselves so much, that may be changing now.



The Surf Kayak event was alongside Surf Lifesaving for a full day at Saunton Sands on the Monday. Round one and the repecharges were held in good conditions, and everyone surfed at least two rounds in each class.



For semi-finals on Tuesday and finals on Wednesday, we moved to Croyde beach alongside the shortboard, longboard and bodyboard competitions. Croyde Surf Club hosted a great event with judging tower, commentary and music, and the RNLI lifeguards helped keep the contest area clear for some great action in the heats. Special guests Maxi, Reidi and Troy from Sky TV's programme "Bondi Rescue" captained teams for a fun tag-team race for surfers in the middle of the day.



Surf kayak finals were in sunshine and with good waves. 2 Golds for Devon and 2 Golds for Cornwall, with Valentin Henot from Brittany putting in a great performance reaching the U21 short boat final.



Thanks to chief judge Glyn Brackenbury, and judges Denzil, Steve Chivers and Andy McCullough for their help in the week.
